The Unfaithful Ways

There’s a growing movement across the nation. Young, talented musicians are devoting themselves to country music. One Lyttelton band that walk the walk are The Unfaithful Ways who’ve been charming audiences with their fine harmony singing and back-to-basics, small-town style. We join 20 year old song-writer and lead-singer Marlon Williams at The Kings Arms Tavern in Auckland as the band prepare to release their debut album.....
